    Post Wisconsin Carry

    This is my first time on here, so I hope I am doing this correctly. I just passed my concealed carry class yesterday, but missed a few points from the instructor. I am hoping someone can answer a few questions.

    1) Is Wisconsin a open carry state? Can my hand gun be holstered but in plain sight, or does it have to be concealed?

    2) How can you carry your handgun in the car in this state? Does it have to be locked up in a box? From what I can tell it can not be transported in the glove box. Can it be on your person if it is holstered?

    Thanks to anyone who can give me some advise.

    Wisconsin is an Open Carry state. A very good reason for carrying with a Wisconsin Concealed Carry License is obviating the potential issues with an over zealous cop.

    Will you say what company your instructor represented, his name and how much you paid?

    Here is the Department of Justice Concealed Carry Law site, with their rules and FAQ and link to Curriculum material -

    Note well that the DoJ and many "trainers" do not make adequate reference to Wisconsin State Statutes -

    Here are the bulk of the particular Concealed Carry statute requirements -

    Here is the Statute subsection on transporting a gun -
